Yea… we all know the truth.
The wrong Clowns left the building.
Many clowns returned to their home countries when the first lockdown came into force in early 2020, Mr Duffy told BBC’s Good Morning Ulster programme.
With Duffy’s Circus now returning to touring after more than 500 days of closure, the family-run business is struggling to find recruits.
"Because all the circuses in Europe and in England have been up and operational for the past six months, that huge pool of EU artists are already back at work and up until last week we haven’t been able to even get visas issued for non-EU artists and entertainers," Mr Duffy said.
“That’s why we’re trying to reach out for any of our folks at home who feel that they can give it a go.”
Exactly how the Crown did it the last two times. Exactly.
